How can I convince my friend to get an SG Standard?

Recommended Posts

If someone wanted to give me $2,500 for my SG I wouldn't sell it...

 

Tell him to buy used. You can find one for $800 pretty easily.

 

It's something that you can keep your whole lifetime. If you love your SG like I do you will never get tired of it. If you look at it as something that will last you forever then it won't seem so expensive. It IS worth it.

 

And $1200 is a pretty good price for a great Gibson.

I don't think you should say anything. Just go to a guitar shop and have him play one. On the ride there, listen to Black Sabbath, AC/DC, Santana, Cream, The Allman Brothers, The Who, etc. That could work? [lol]

I have a 2009 USA Strat (very nice! upgraded from a MIM), 2008 LP Studio (joy/easy to play, upgraded from a Yamaha AES620)....and a 2005 SG Stnd...my favorite is the SG....GREAT guitar (nice, joy to play, great sound!). My son's now looking for his SG. Got mine off eBay a few months ago...under $800.

Everyone's already said it. Have him try it out. Don't force him to buy a guitar he's not sure he's going to like. The SG isn't for everyone, as much as I hate to say that.

Hmmm....well, I wouldn't "try to convince him," of which guitar HE should play.

That's so personal, and everyone has their own ideas, of what best suits their style.

 

Personally, I love SG's...but, I love every other guitar I own, as well. So...??? If he's

meant to have an SG...he'll get 'round to it, on his own terms, and time.

As Gibson's go...the SG Standard is a pretty good deal, price wise, as it is.

"Used but not abused," is a great way to save even more. But, ultimately, it's his

call/decision.
